5.4.35. BP147_TZPC component

The BP147_TZPC component is a programmer’s view model of the ARM TrustZone Protection Controller (TZPC) peripheral. The TZPC provides a software interface to the protection bits in a secure system in a TrustZone design. For a detailed description of the behavior of the BP147 TZPC, see the component documentation. See the PrimeCell Infrastructure AMBA 3 TrustZone Protection Controller (BP147) Revision: r0p0 Technical Overview.
